Tool Making?

You said that this result was evidence of tool making. In fact, you didn't even see a chimp use a tool, much less make a tool. Maybe the problem was that the bananas were hung too high -- even if the chimp used both sticks together. Maybe you could lower the bananas a bit. But since Dr. Kohlgood set up that part of the experiment, maybe you could put something else in the chimp's area to help the chimp get closer to the bananas. But remember, the goal is to observe a chimp making a tool.

Please try again to design an experiment to see if chimps are capable of making tools.
